According to Aaron Wilson of TexansDaily, the Texans have cut running back Darius Jackson. The move comes just 12 days after the Texans signed him to their roster.
Houston is the second team to release Jackson in 2021. He spent a few days on the Las Vegas Raiders roster before being waived on August 2.
Jackson has been a journeyman for pretty much his entire career. He’s played for seven teams, including three stints with the Cowboys.

In the 2016 NFL Draft, the Dallas Cowboys drafted Darius Jackson in the sixth round. However, injuries kept him off the field as a rookie, and he was waived the following year.
Stints with the Browns, Packers and Cowboys again resulted in no playing time until 2018. During his third stint with the Cowboys, he made his NFL debut and had 16 rushing yards on six carries in a game against the New York Giants.
Since then, Jackson has been signed and released by four teams – including the Indianapolis Colts twice.
